MotoGP » Valentino Rossi 'suffering' but won’t leave Ducati

The pressure is on Ducati from all sides. Rossi has broken his silence to say how unhappy he is, DORNA have said that Ducati must not ne responsible for Rossi leaving MotoGP because of uncompetitive machinery and the CEO of VW /AUDI has said he thinks it is embarrassing that the bike is not good enough & in his opinion the bike needs scrapping and redesigning from the ground up by someone with experience of aluminium race bikes. Considering the announcement is expected on Wednesday that VW has completed its buyout of Ducat I would expect things to change soon

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare

Just to look at this fairly. Stoner NEVER won a WC for Ducati on a carbon chassis in 20077 when he won it was a steel trellis frame. As soon as Ducati introduced the carbon chassis in 2008 Stoner started falling off the bike. Stoner himself complained of the same faults that Rossi has on the Ducati and in interviews since he left Ducati Stoner commented that every "Updated" chassis he was given was harder to ride than the last. Ducati have never been good at building any other chassis than steel trellis & since they stopped using them the chassis have been built by a 3rd party company.

MotoGP » Valentino Rossi lashes out after Qatar nightmare

The real question is in another month when VW complete their purchase of Ducati how will things change? Rossi, Stoner & all the other riders they have had have all said roughly the same. Ducati give them a bike and say set it up & are very slow making changes instead insisting the bike is fundamentally good and its a case of finding the right setup. The chairman of VW who freely admits to being a massive fan of motorbikes has said in his opinion it would be easier to scrap develoment work of the Ducati & start afresh, Whats the bet this happens very soon?

WSBK » Haslam hints at BMW ascension with new landmark

@ Md Zane What total and utter bull***t Leon gets his rides on pure talent alone. At the end of the 2010 season Leon was the ONLY rider who changed teams or resigned with existing who signed a contract where they were paid. All other riders who signed new contracts did so based on bringing sponsorship or personal finance to the team. All through Leons career his dad Ron has been very clear that he will give advise and coaching but Leon would have to get rides because he deserved them.
